Orientation, First Day & What To Bring
Clerkship orientation: Orientation is at the UW at 8:00AM on the first day of your clerkship. The room number is on the Didactics page. Room information may change at the end of each rotation, so be sure to check the table the weekend before you begin.
Equipment to bring: White coat and name tag, reflex hammer, tuning fork (128Hz), stethoscope, (Ophthalmoscope recommended).
Travel & Housing
Mileage reimbursement: You will receive mileage reimbursement for one roundtrip to and from Puyallup, and for your trips back and forth to Seattle for weekly class meetings. Contact Scott Bailey at
to arrange for reimbursement.
This site has two clinics: one in Tacoma and one in Puyallup. Students will spend time at both clinics, but will start in the Puyallup clinic. The clinics are 19 miles apart. Keep track of which site you are travelling from on the days you come to Seattle for class meetings. The Puyallup and Tacoma sites are not equal distance from Seattle, and so your starting point is necessary in order to reimburse you properly.
Housing: Housing is available at request.
Driving directions to the Puyallup clinic: Please contact the office manager for directions, or use one of the online map/directions websites (such as Google maps or Map Quest). Click here for directions to MultiCare Hospitals.
